It is not just about software development,
This review is from: The Inmates are Running the Asylum: Why High-Tech Products Drive Us Crazy and How to Restore the Sanity (Hardcover)
I found the book useful. Not because I agree with everything (I don't), but because it provides a useful tool to understand decision making in IT organizations.
He writes a lot about design, but the issue usually boils down to management and how it fails in IT-organizations. Those who reads this as just a receipe for how to designing software fails to grasp the point.
Yes, I agree that he beats his own drum a lot. However he still delivers the goods in an entertaining way.
